Almond, dried plum, and vanilla protein baked muesli (serves 1)
1/2 cup muesli (or oats if you prefer)
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (or whatever type of milk you prefer... you can use water as well)
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder (I used About Time/SDC Nutrition protein powder in Birthday Cake flavor)
2 tablespoons chopped unsweetened dried plums
1 tablespoon slivered almonds
Optional: cinnamon, stevia, nutmeg, ground clove, ground ginger
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small pot, bring unsweetened almond milk to a boil. Add muesli to almond milk, then simmer for 3-5 minutes, or until most of the liquid has been absorbed. Remove from heat, and fold in protein powder, dried plums, and any additional ingredients (I used a liberal amount of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and ginger). Pour muesli mixture into an oven-safe dish. Top with slivered almonds. I also sprinkled some more cinnamon and a bit of stevia on the top. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until top begins to brown. Eat and enjoy!

|Clean lemonade... delicious!|
Quick and Clean Lemonade (serves 2)
Liquid stevia drops to taste
Slice lemons, and place lemon slices evenly in two glasses. Pour sparkling water over lemon slices. Finally, add liquid stevia to lemonade until you reach your desired sweetness. Yum!
Of course, you can use other citrus fruits if you'd like--- limes, oranges, grapefruit. One of my favorite things to do is to add a bit of fresh mint into my clean lemonade for a refreshing lemon-mint beverage. Its such a simple recipe that's great for whenever you need a break from "just water!"
In other news, tomorrow starts a whole new workout schedule for me. It will be a hybrid of marathon run training (focusing on lowering my time), heavy weight lifting, and P90X3 workouts. I'm excited--- it'll give my workout schedule more structure, and it'll prevent overuse of the same muscle groups on consecutive days. Stay posted for definitive details!
As always, be happy and be healthy guys!
